Arts “Give Day” Challenges

The arts at UC Davis are a vital part of the College of Letters and Science, which is the largest and most diverse of the campus’s four colleges. Our faculty and students create performing and visual arts that enlighten, entertain and educate the campus and local community and beyond.

Inside our classrooms, studios, rehearsal halls and labs, our students engage deeply in learning across disciplinary boundaries. But some of the most profound and lasting student experiences cannot happen without the philanthropy of donors.  

Give Day 2019 features a number of challenges that benefit the arts, its programs and institutions here on campus. Support the arts at UC Davis by making a gift to one or more of the challenges listed below. You can donate early with your gift helping to “unlock” the Give Day Challenges. #UCDavisGiveDay
